It seems that people want, in addition to several logs, the ability to
write to each log, given levels.
I don't fancy levels, but a lot of people requested them.
They do have a nice ring to it. Then, each module can have its own log,
and you can write all sorts of info to each log:
BOOST_LOGL(gui,dbg) << "debug message";
BOOST_LOGL(gui,err) << "error message";
